So many education apps! Here’s help picking the best

At the Microsoft in Education Global Forum in Barcelona, there’s a lot of buzz about the rise of mobile computing and new apps that make math fun, bring reading and storytelling to life and that make collaborating with students in distant classrooms as easy as a quick swipe of the screen.

A quick scan of the Windows Store turns up thousands of apps designed to support teaching and learning – from early learning “games” to apps that help teachers manage their classrooms – with more apps being published every day. 

Based on the feedback of educators around the globe, as well as the Microsoft education team’s experience in navigating the crowded app landscape, the team has curated a list of hundreds of the best education apps available – from apps that make lessons more accessible for students with learning disabilities, to e-readers and text books, to apps that cover every imaginable curricular subject.

This comprehensive guide to education apps includes well-known learning apps like Kahn Academy, BrainPop animated learning, Haiku Learning, EduPad’s math apps for grades 3-8 and Adaptive Curriculum’s math and science apps for older students.
